If Vanderbilt’s offense can’t get things done, maybe the Commodores defense will pick up the slack enough for a win at Kentucky on Saturday.
Coming out of a brutal first half that left the Commodores trailing Kentucky 17-3 at Commonwealth Stadium, Vanderbilt’s luck may have changed on the first play from scrimmage in the second half.
Vanderbilt safety Ryan White, who is a Kentucky native, forced a fumble from Wildcats RB Stanley “Boom” Williams. It was scooped by Commodores DB Taurean Ferguson and returned 22 yards for a Vanderbilt touchdown.

It helped Vanderbilt trim the deficit to 17-10 with nearly the entire second half to play. However, the Commodores are still likely to require at least one offensive touchdown if they expect to pull out Derek Mason’s first road SEC victory in Lexington on Saturday.
